Office chair casters are just a tiny part in this process when figuring all this out. You will need to decipher how much of a need you will have to move these chairs around. If you are fairly sure once this setup is complete it's not going to be moved than you might decide to not worry about getting them at all.
Here are a couple chair ideas. Go exploring your own town and see where you can find discarded wooden window blinds. Cut them to about three feet wide stain and generously clear-coat them. You'll need to cut out a support form which you should find easily enough on the web by searching for 'window blind chair'. Cheap plywood will do the job. Cut the two support forms and glue/nail it all in place. After a few cracks at it you'll end up being able to build wonderfully cool chairs that cost next to nothing and can easily be sold for $100.00. The second is simply an old steel drum. These can be found anywhere for free and only need a good cleaning and some clear coat finish. Take a look at the photo. You only need to make a good cut, cover the edge with rubber edging and add a cheap cushion and some $10.00 legs. Again - this should sell for $100.00 easy.
For simple modification look into pairing a narrow chair rail with two interesting moldings, one top and one at the bottom. By implementing three pieces of pre-shaped wood you can actually come up with complex chair rail without having to do your own routing.
I owned a bar once upon a time and we really bootstrapped it. We were short on start up money and needed a bunch of tables. These tables also had to be quite durable as our clientele tended to drink and carry on quite a bit. I'll admit that it wasn't me but my partner Scott that came up with the idea. Industrial spools. We found a place in Montreal that sold and re-sold huge industrial spools, the kind that can carry a few miles of telephone wire, anywhere from two to ten feet in diameter. We rented a van and went down there. The place was totally fine with us helping ourselves to six spools, each about four feet high and four feet in diameter. We simply sanded them down and applied generous amounts of shellac. They turned out beautifully.
While looking for chair rail ideas anyone may also turn to other modes of designing. A flat, uncomplicated chair molding could be elevated by simply the add-on of a decorative band of wall paper. These border strips are generally applied at the top of a wall, however, if selected carefully may be used for a wide chair molding also. Be careful: most of the time you may wish to use either a ceiling high border or a band for the chair rail, however not both. Too much decoration is no longer a beautiful element, but mere clutter.
If you do nothing else, take the time to decorate the bride and groom's chairs for the reception table. One pretty idea is to hang a custom initial on the back of each chair. The letters are usually created from natural materials such as moss or flowers (carnations work especially well). Use a pretty satin ribbon to suspend the initial on each seat. If you wish to take it one step further, add more embellishment to the custom initials. A bride who will be wearing crystal wedding jewelry can hang her initial on a strand of sparkling crystals instead of a ribbon, for example.
